Children Ages 3-12 and Teens ages 13-18 receive discounted rates on tickets. Please check the individual tour's page for exact rates. Children under 3 are free.
Currently we don't have senior rates. However, some of us are approaching senior status and may change our policy soon!
As a family owned and operated business we are especially aware of the needs of children of all ages. Most kids can learn to snorkel as early as 2-3 years old. Our crew is especially good working with children. Each of our trips are different, but all have lots of fun things to do for kids!
With our large stable ocean tested catamarans, coupled with the protected waters we sail, seasickness is rare. If a passenger is prone to seasickness we offer natural and over-the-counter remedies to be taken at guest's discretion.
All of our vessels have either covered cabins or awnings or both.
All the vessels have ample storage area for personal gear. Trilogy 1, 4, 5 & 6 have the largest covered cabins.
For safety purposes we require our passengers to wear a type of flotation while snorkeling. Trilogy offers two comfortable options for guests to choose from:
1. A buoyant flotation belt or
2. A non-buoyant inflatable vest. This vest gives you the option to freely dive down below the surface.
Our primary goal is your safety and satisfaction. Because we have a 100% guarantee on all our trips, we won't go out in weather that would make it difficult to show you a good time. Remember: island weather can be very deceptive -- i.e. It can be raining and windy a couple of miles north of Lahaina, and calm and sunny in Lahaina and on Lana'i.
Each boat is US Coast Guard certified for substantially more passengers that we take on our trips. Generally we take 15-20 couples on our 55 ft. cats, and 20-25 couples on our 65 ft. cat.
The Kaanapali trip leaves right from the beach on West Maui and can choose from several miles of coastline with many SNUBA dive and snorkel sites. During the summer months we typically go north to Honolua Bay, and in the winter south to Olowalu.
During holidays several weeks advance reservation is recommended to guarantee the trip and day of your choice. Most of the time a week to ten days advance reservation is adequate.
We have a separate Group Department that plans a wide variety of trips and special functions for groups as small as 4 to as large as 400. You can call them direct at 808-661-4743 x7010 or email: email@example.com
Both sites are considered excellent. Molokini has some of the best and most consistent water clarity in Hawaii. It does get a bit crowded however. (One of the reasons we get such an early start!) Hulopoe beach on Lana'i has been called one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. We are the only company with permission to bring visitors to this incredible spot! Most of the time the diving and snorkeling here is as good as it gets. There are a few days during the summer months when surf from the South Pacific reduces the visibility. But 95% of the time, the diving and snorkeling here is world class!
We are always looking for quality crew. The best way is to come in personally and have an interview. The next best way is to call us at 808 661 4743 x7029 and ask for a Job App. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Phone reservations using our toll free number 1-888-225-MAUI is immediate and direct. However, we answer all e-mail within a day or two.

Parking is available at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel parking structure right near our departure point. Take your parking ticket to our staff at the Trilogy Ocean Sports Beach Kiosk before or after your trip and they will validate it so you may exit the parking structure without charge.
Whether the parents dive is not the question. Children must be a minimum of 8 years of age.
From time to time, we may offer seasonal on-line discounts. Check our web site for details.
All of our Discover Lana'i trips offer the island tour. We drive past the two luxury hotels but don't stop and go inside. We can arrange a special hotel tour for an additional charge.
The Humpback whales arrive in Hawaiian waters sometime in November and stay until sometime in April. From December through March we see whales almost every day.
Dolphins, both Spinner and bottle nose, are in Hawaiian waters year round. Depending on their feeding cycles, we can see dolphins almost daily.
Trilogy adheres to the Dolphin SMART guidelines of not approaching dolphins to within 50 yards. Swimming with dolphins is considered by some to be harassment so while we don't offer swimming with dolphins, we are pleased to report that dolphins have been coming in to Hulopoe Bay on a regular basis!
We follow the industry standard 48 hour cancellation requirement. However, we always try to reschedule our guests as we know your plans can change suddenly.
Infants and small children are always safe on our trips. It is more a question of how much extra work they will represent to you. On the plus side, children under 3 are free!
We can provide both kids jackets and/or ski belts for on board and in water activity.
We can usually find one of the crew to watch small children for a limited time. Generally we try to schedule dives separately so one parent can stay with children.
We don't offer car seats as a general rule. But we can provide one if requested.
Thousands of our guests have snorkeled wearing contacts. We also have prescription masks with a wide range of optics.
We have Optical masks with a wide range of magnification.
Probably. Our record for a first time snorkeler is 87!
No, you will need to bring your own towel.
Yes, lots of palm trees.
All our vessels have changing areas.
All our vessels are equipped with two heads (restrooms).
Trilogy does have a "shark protocol". Reef shark sightings are a rare yet welcomed occurrence. Recently there have been concerns about larger sharks in our waters, and yes, we share the same ocean, however in our 40+ years we have never had our crew or guest's safety compromised by an encounter with a shark.
All our recipes are available on our blog.
